About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to get lost in new places

ABOUT ME

I love art, dream a lot and forget too easily, love life's randomness, adventures and surprises. I like to sing and dance though I really can't do either and I would love to live as close as possible to the sea.
I can be a bit temperamental or at times solitary, but lots of things make me happy (for example ice cream! And panda bears!).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

At the moment I can't host people, but I'd like to get a coffee or a drink with you, or even better, find an adventure of some kind.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I don't care that much about the traditional sightseeing and strange encounters, stories and unexpected things are much more interesting.
It also makes me happy to think that there are so many people who are willing to share their home and thoughts and experiences with others.

Interests

Art and poetry and literature. Traveling, especially by the train, getting lost in new places and meeting wonderful crazy people.
The ocean, sailing, endless summer nights and adventures. Elephants.
New ideas, different cultures, different approaches to life.
Wandering aimlessly in the streets of new cities.
Complicated, confusing, irrational life.

Music, Movies, and Books

I can listen to any music I find inspiring and it really depends on my current mood, so it's difficult . Bach, Skepta and Janis Joplin, but also fado or the folk music of Balkan. The genre doesn't matter, if it moves something in me.

My favorite movies at the moment are Lovers of the Arctic Circle and Blue Valentine, the movies of Wes Anderson and Tarkovsky.

I love books and a few of my favourite authors at the moment are Dostoyevsky, Tove Jansson, Fitzgerald, Jorge Luis Borges, Mihail Bulkagov, and Michael Ondaatje. Also Virginia Woolf, Anne Carson, Jeanette Winterson and Paul Celan. The best book I've read for a long time is One Hundred Years of Solitude.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

It's difficult to choose, so I will choose the most recent: moving to Florence to find something new and beautiful. Or interrailing through Balkan.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm not sure if I have any special talents I could share (I have to think about this. I'd like to be able to teach something. Though I know something about art and history.), but I always love to learn new things even if it was about making pancakes, astronomy or how the universe works.
